Pvt. George E. Watrous
Co. D


George Watrous is my great grandfather. I have civil war letters he wrote to his 1/2 sister in Bradford PA All of his children lived in to their 90s except my grandmother she died in 1987 at 102 years of age. I also have the bloody handkerchief w/ buttet holes he carried when he was shot the first time. Finally I have 2 pictures of him 1 color 1 b&w which I could email to the round table. Any questions please mail back
